after sitting for a period, suddenly regaining a bit of memory and jumping up, jumping up, jumping up,,,,,,oops, the mind is up, the body is half way there, stiff, almost unresponsive as it slowly straightens up, groaning in pain as it settles into a standing position...

starting cooking dinner and getting distracted......30 minutes later as you have yet another project started you suddenly remember you were in the middle of cooking dinner, not washing clothes!

having a Friday night kid free and screaming YIPPIE, no------not that, but relishing the thought of peace and quiet for a night!

Watching the discovery channel with dh and actually enjoying it!

Thinking twice about going out shopping when staying in and vegging sounds so much better...

realizing the deep generation gap between you and your youngest child...

oh I gotta stop, I'm depressing myself.

I forgot about the gray hair thing because my family gets gray so early. My DH is doing very well in that department and keeps rubbing it in.

What about those strange pains or little jolts? Anyone else? They don't happen often but every once in awhile there is a quick pain or jolt that I can only think it's because the body is starting to go downhill.

Oh yeah and don't get me started on the "going south" and sagging issues. At least my hubby thinks it's cute.

I'm with MBW on the mind thing. It's one thing that our bodies go down hill but I want to be aware and understand, not counting the small memory loss. I told my DH "don't let me live that way". I

I know one thing, I can't drink like I used to. If I go out and drink heavily, let's say on a Friday night, I need Saturday & Sunday to re-cooperate. Back in the day, I used to be able to party on Friday night, Saturday night, and sometimes Sunday night, and be at work on Monday morning like 'heeeeeeeeeey'...
